toothfairy captionI thought you’d like to know that gold medalist and mom Kristi Yamaguchi (also the daughter of a dentist) and her kids are just one of many that are helping smiles in need by participating in Tom’s of Maine “Be a Tooth Fairy Hero” program. February is Children’s Dental Health Month and a great time to show support and raise awareness for kids oral care.

With the click of a mouse you’re entered for a chance to win a $10,000 donation to a dental clinic in your state, plus toothpaste for your child’s school. Tooth fairy artwork is optional but highly encouraged!

Details on the program:

· Tom’s of Maine is inviting children to break out their crayons and creativity to draw an artistic interpretation of the Tooth Fairy that could help smiles in need.

  1. Aww…the tooth fairy article really touched my heart. I was raised in a family of 9 kids, on a farm. No floride in the water and no preventative dental care. The thing I feel most embarrassed about my self is my teeth. With the economy now, and little or no dental insurance for many, kids are going without the proper care of their teeth. In a day when these generations should be able to keep their teeth healthy and KEEP their own teeth for their entire life, I feel bad that kids are often neglected in this area because of cost.
    I’d love to win that contest for the area my son lives in. It’s not a very thriving part of the state and with 3 kids themselves, it would be nice to donate to that area.
